Spain Catalonia: Conviction over Inés Arrimadas gang-rape jibe
A Spanish woman who wrote a Facebook post saying she wanted to see unionist leader Inés Arrimadas gang raped has been given a four-month suspended jail sentence. The post was written after a TV debate in which Ms Arrimadas defended her stance against Catalan independence. Ms Arrimadas, who heads the Catalan wing of the liberal unionist Citizens party, said it was "Hate speech". Miras Puigpinós, 45, posted the comment after the television debate in September. Miras Puigpinós' post also made homophobic comments towards the leader of the Catalan Socialists, Miquel Iceta.
